No frills - just a true slice of southwest suburbia and skate action
Levelland sums up high school life in a suburban town very well and is to be appreciated by skate fans. The film is far from slick, but relies on the strength of the acting talents of the two brothers and the stifling boredom of subdivisions and strip malls. The actors are not Hollywood pretty boys - they appear to do their own skating - and after a few minutes I was settled in to see a film that did NOT feel the need to shock or insult the audience. Life goes on, but there's no easy way out.
The soundtrack is impressive, but more geared for those in their 30's and 40's than high school kids. Texas Instruments, Big Boys, Replacements, Defenestration, and Meat Puppets are just a few bands to be featured.
A small part of me wishes it could have had a bigger budget, but all in all it will be a good archive for the time and place.
